Jarre is one of the godfathers of electronic music, and this early album is one of his best. Its best known part is certainly Oxygène 4, but one really should listen to this album as a whole, not for individual tracks. Jarre is weaving a tapestry of ever-repeating patterns and introduces gradual over time, so it never gets boring. A classic masterpiece of electronic music. 5/5

The inspiration for countless infomercial and documentary soundtracks. Despite a bit too much theremin vibrato and vaguely muddy mixing, this album is simultaneously the sound of the past and the sound of the future.

Großartig! Atmosphärisch! Spacig! Spannend! Wem ist die Stelle mit dem Mass Effect Vibe aufgefallen? Gleich nochmal hören! Bzw. weiterhören mit Oxygène 2 & 3. Vor seinem Sylvesterkonzert hab ich lang nichts mehr von ihm gehört, aber ich war erfreut, dass er noch aktiv ist. Als Mitbegründer von Electronic mischt er sich heutzutage nahtlos zwischen seine Kollegen.

I think this album might be directly responsible for the entire sound of 80s sci-fi and some mainstream sound that's seen even today. For 1976, this shit feels way ahead of its time and it's also super enjoyable to listen to. Parts 3 and 6 are the best ones

Dramatic, cinematic.I remember watching his outdoor light spectacles on TV as a kid - Oxygene Part 4 brings back those memories. Rich textures, Spacemen 3 learnt from this. It’s very different to Kraftwerk, this is more like waves, more atmospheric. No words, this is music to make you wonder. Dreamy. I love it. Nice to hear an album without lyrics that still very much holds the attention.

I got Gary Numan through this project recently, and was bemoaning the lack of Vangelis on the list, so awarded him the title of "main source of synthesizer soundtracks of the future, from the past". That was shameful Jean-Michel Jarre erasure, and for that, I apologize. Oxygene is great! Exactly my jam. On the one hand, it's the scifi soundtrack to the future TV and movies have been promising me my whole life. On the other hand, it's a nostalgia machine that whisks me back to my childhood. Fave track - well, "Part IV" is the famous, nay, iconic section, but I really enjoyed the frenetic mania of "Part II" this time around. The second half of "Part V" is pretty badass, too....

Great sound, impossible not to get sucked in. It's funny listening to the laser and bomb-drop whistle sound effects now but I think they date it without making it too cheesy. Definitely makes me wanna dust off the old Casio. Made great use of stereo sound too, if a little overplayed. You can hear where so many artists like daft punk, Robert Miles and Ross Gellar got their inspiration.

Another one I know is classic, but have never knowingly listened to. I think there is one track I know, but I'll have to wait and see. A minute in, and this could go Kraftwerk, or could be terrible. Love me some fake singing saw though! At 4:30 on part one it feels a lot like Wendy Carlos' sublime music from A Clockwork Orange. Oxygene 2 has a little more life to it, though it carried on so much I did stop listening in parts - probably more my barbaric ears than a failure of composition. Oxygene 3 opens quite dramatically. But doesn't go anywhere especially, though it is only short. Oxygene 4 is the one I know! When I was growing up in the 80s I think it was the standard piece of music you'd use to immediately signify THE FUTURE. I still like it! Oxygene 5 appears to be like an overture, revisiting the record so far, which was... Okay I suppose? And 6 was pretty dull. All in all, a pleasant surprise. Lots to like here, and an impressive achievement in 1976. Will I revisit it as much as I do Kraftwerk? No, but it was pretty good nonetheless.

In its time this would have been ground-breaking and a clear 5 for being utterly new and different. Out of context in the modern day when a child with a bit of software could do this, it's slightly less impressive and I find myself rating it purely on composition and production. Still a great listen from time to time when you need ambient electronic tunes without lyrics whilst working. Pt4 is my favourite, though that might be a British thing having grown up hearing it in every seaside arcade for my entire life. I'll definitely continue to listen to this in future.

Perhaps a bit dated compared to today's standards, but it's certainly ahead of it's time. I would have never guessed this album was 45+ years old. This is essentially just one long song (or two, really) separated into 6 tracks. It feels very much like a sci-fi movie soundtrack, which I like. An undoubtedly influential piece of music. I'll be revisiting this one!

I didn't really need to listen to this seminal electronic album from the 70s because I think I've already listened to it a thousand times over the past 45 years. But it never gets old for me so it was a nice refresher over breakfast. Some of the early moog effects such as the laser beam pew pew and ocean sounds are cringe-worthy today, but back in the day this was a really groundbreaking futuristic sound. Along with his peers such as Mike Oldfield and Tangerine Dream, Jarre was on the forefront of electronic music and would go on to influence numerous other electronic bands and what you kids know as EDM. Jarre's sound evolved over the next few albums and his best work was yet to come with Equinoxe, Zoolook and the Concert in China but the ground-breaking influence of this album cannot be denied.

It’s hard for me to evaluate this without thinking about what I was listening to in 1976: Genesis? Steeley Dan? Punk hadn’t hit Sudbury yet. The more beat oriented tracks on this LP wouldn’t have sounded out of place in the 90s. As they say, it was an influential release. I’ll add a point for that reason, but I like it because songs/hooks are catchy.

This has way more similarity to both Jeff Wayne's War of The Worlds and Wendy Carlos' Clockwork Orange soundtrack than I remembered. The influences of both are clear, and while there is vast amounts of this album that is theramin and plinky-plonk heavy, it is clear that there's a lot of visionary stuff in it. I'd be genuinely interested in finding out if Jarre had any contact with the BBC radiophonic workshop or Carlos, as it really sounds like there's been a lot of cross-pollination.

Impossible not to imagine a video game loading screen while listening to this. Dude, they should put the "Minecraft: Volume Alpha Soundtrack" in the next edition of this book. Think about it. Video game music is still music and the Minecraft OST is better than like 80% of the music on this list anyways. Did you know that the Minecraft soundtrack takes some inspiration from Jean-Michel Jarre? Me neither, but apparently it does. Listen to the Minecraft soundtrack if you haven't yet, you won't regret it. It's genuinely beautiful. Oh yeah. This album. It's surprisingly really good. Maybe the songs go on for a bit too long. I recognize "Oxygène, Pt. 4" from Limmy's Show.

Oxygène Pt 2 i Pt 4 són dos dels millors temes de la protoelectrònica, i el segon d'ells podria entrar en un Top del millor que va donar la música popular als '70. El disc en sí és el pic de creativitat de Jarre i obté un lloc merescut a la llista de discos que s'han d'escoltar abans de morir.

Dawno nie bylo czegos zupelnie instrumentalnego, wiec jest Oxygene pana Jeana Michela Jarre, jest to jego trzeci studyjny krazek i pierwszy album ktory sprzedal sie mainstreamowo, a gatunkowo jest to elektronika tworzona na analogowych syntezatorach plus jednym digitalowym, bo jest to plyta z 76, wiec wydaje sie byc jednym z pionierow takiego sposobu tworzenia muzyki, opartej wylacznie na syntezatorach i efektach ktore oferuja, bo obok dzwiekow przypominajacych klasyczne instrumenty pojawiaja sie takze wariacie, ktore lubie okreslac jako kosmiczne echa i tym podobne szumy, trzaski i piski, dlatego tez obok ambientu nasuwa sie skojarzenie z kosmiczna muzyka jak u kraftwerkowcow, ale tutaj panuje bardziej kosmiczny ambient, calosc jest spojna i przyjemna w odsluchu, prawie 40 minut materialu jest podzielone na szesc trakow, ktore sa wylacznie zatytulowane nazwa albumu i partem, bo rownie dobrze moglaby to byc jedna calosc, bo podczas odsluchu traki dosc plynnie przechodza w kolejne, dawno nie bylo instrumentali i rownie dawno nie czulem czegos tak neutralnie naturalnego w odsluchu, a chociaz za elektronika nie przepadam jestem oczarowany ta plyta, bo bije z niej taki spokoj, doslownie czilera utopia i gdy zamkne oczy prawie czuje sie jakbym znowu lezal pod gwiezdzistym niebem na mokrej juz trawie nie myslac o tym co bedzie trzeba robic jutro, wiec jestem kupiony tym albumem, nie dodaje poszczegolnych trakow na plejke, bo z elektronicznej i tak rzadko kiedy slucham, ale caly album leci do biblioteczki spotifajowej, jak tak pomysle to calkiem sporo francuzkiej elektroniki mi podchodzi, patrzac nie tylko przez pryzmat listy, ale bardziej ogolnie, przypadek, nie sadze

Reminds me very much of Vangelis' music. Had to listen to "Fields of Coral" by Vangelis in the middle of this. I think since its release, there have been better version of synth instrumental albums that I've discovered before this so it's going to be an unremarkable album in my opinion.

Boy, this album keeps going, doesn't it. I'm ordinarily a fan of early MOOG synthesizer stuff like this, but this album is so slow, it's hard to do anything with it but put in on in the background and ignore it. It works fine for that purpose, but it contrasts pretty sharply with, for instance, Plantasia by Mort Garson, which was released the same year and felt like it had much more of a concept to it. I can see why this album is highly regarded in the history of electronic music, but I don't think it holds up without its historical context 3/5

I listened to less than 10 min of this at home and it wasn't doing much for me but I had to drive to Ajax tonight so I tried again in the car. I used the YouTube link which I later learned was a remastered extended version. Something about the car stereo and being in an enclosed space made it quite enjoyable. This music is made for headphones.  The only parallels I can draw are that  some of the extended mix sounded like laser fire on that ancient video game called Galaxia and the last half of Pt 5 sounds like the music played on 1970s porn. What's not to like?

Varmasti ollut uusinta uutta aikanaan ja eihän tuo mitenkään huonosti ole ikääntynyt, mutta ei ihan minun kuppini teetä. Ei häirinnyt, mutta en oikein voi väittää tykänneenikään kovin paljoa. Se oli ylläri, että levyltä löytyi popcornia, piti oikein googlata että onko se alunperin Jarren, mutta olikin vielä vanhempi styge. pt.6 4:55 kohdasta löysin yhtäläisyyttä myös Aavikon Torpedo Boysiin (~1:30 ->)

Ich mochte vor allem die ausgefallen und abwechslungsreichen Songtitel. Eigentlich aber auch nur das, die Musik klingt, wie Wahlgesänge auf LSD

An interesting project. Just synth and drums. It feels like listening to a spacey David Attenburough documentary. I probably won't register, but it's a fun project. Fav track: Oxygen 4

It’s alright and I hear how influential this is but I’m not just going to sit around listening to space vibe music.

With only a couple good songs, it’s clear that this album is most notable for its production and sound rather than composition. Influential yet it meanders aimlessly for most of its run time

I could hear this being a soundtrack for a sci-fi video game or something. Probably wouldn’t listen on my own though.

I wasn't looking forward to this but it isn't as cheesy as I expected. Probably amazing in it's day but now heard loads of the tracks on tv and ads etc

Kinda fine. Perhaps more ground breaking at the time of its release?

Fine, probably a lot more ground breaking in 76

So. I did not like this. Just forty minutes of instrumental synth music. Maybe it'd be good in a video game, but on its own? No thanks, I'll pass.

Might as well have come out in the 80s for how dated, excessive, and cloying it is. A lack of any melodic throughline means this is ambient music listening at best.

It sounds like someone has left a synth plugged in and left the room. Best Tracks: Oxygene Part 2; Oxygene Part 4; Oxygene Part 6

Honestly, how much fucking French electronica does this list need to have?!?! I can’t stand it. It’s just so asinine. Point added for this album art though, because it is really cool. I just cannot stand this music and I’ve had my fill of this niche genre already, thanks.

Can I give something zero stars? No, I'm just kidding, it wasn't that bad. It felt like Ross made an entire album with his soundscapes. Not my style, but to each his own.

I'm not even going to pretend that this album was any good. Pure pretentious muck, would not waste another 40 minutes of my life listening to it that's for sure. Electronic music that you would probably need to be on acid to appreciate.

Had a hard time getting into this. Kind of felt like a never ending introduction. I enjoy synths as much as the next person but. Wasn't quite clicking for me. Favorite track: Oxygen pt 4

Nope. Not for me. I can see how this is influential on lots of artists and genres, but I personally need a little more structure and prefer lyrics.

I can respect the inspiration this album had and how groundbreaking this album may have been for its time, but definitely not for me. Sounds like a killer video game soundtrack maybe? I LOVE the album art though, would make a cool tattoo.
